Enjoyed our time sitting at the bar. Food was good, bartender quite engaging, and the view to the west definitely worth it. Plus they had the largest pours of single glasses of wine I have ever seen.

Good meal and great staff but we were unable to carry on a conversation due to loud people at surrounding tables and the bar. Won't return as conversation without yelling should be part of the dining experience.
